Dear Amy,

How are you? I am writing to tell you about my summer. It has really been fun. I have gone to the pool several times and I have visited several of my friends from school. Next week, I am going to the beach with my family. I hope you are having a fun summer, too.

Your friend,

Dear Susan,

It feels like such a long time since the last time I saw you. I know it’s only been several weeks since I saw you. So far my summer has been great!

I spend my all my weekends at the beach. I am getting a nice tan and you can no longer say I am paler than you. And I have been playing lots of volleyball, surfing and building a nice collection of seashells. Just this past weekend I took second place in a sandcastle building contest!

On the weekdays I work. I drive an ice cream truck around and sell ice cream to the kids. It is so cool. It is a combination of the two things I love most, ice cream and kids. The pay isn’t too great but I love the job so much.

I hope the summer’s been going well for you too. There are only a month and a half left in summer vacation and after that, it’s back to school. Would you like to meet up sometime before school starts?

Your friend,


P.S. John Austin says hi.
